Demand Action on Kyoto2!

    1. Petition by

In 2007 Australia signed on to phase-one of the Kyoto Protocol on climate change showing the world that we are prepared to do our bit to tackle this global problem.

Now it’s time for the second phase of Kyoto and we need your support to let our political leaders know that we want to be part of the global solution!

Climate change is a global challenge that needs a global fix. All countries need to work together if we are to protect Australia’s precious wildlife and places like the Great Barrier Reef from the impacts of climate change.

Recent years have shown promising signs, with record levels of investment in renewable energy around the world and a growing list of countries adopting national pollution targets.

Walking away from Kyoto now would be leaving a job half done, and leaving other countries in the lurch. That’s not an option for our environment, our planet, or our future.

Signing up to Kyoto2 doesn’t require anything more or less from Australia; it’s simply an extension of the existing commitments made by Australian politicians, and agreeing to be bound to this commitment under international law.

If you don’t think we should leave a job half done, let our leaders know that it’s time for a continued global approach to solving climate change. Ask them to get behind signing Kyoto2.


UPDATE:

We're making real progress.

The Federal Opposition has given their support for Kyoto2! Now the spotlight is on the Government to end the speculation and commit to joining phase two of the Kyoto Protocol.

Your signature can make that happen.

      I believe that humans influence the environment around us. We need to be responsible for our actions. Whatever the eventual changes that occur, we need to think about how we will survive in the future. Don't let complacency stop us from planning for our future. Help protect our environment both now and the future, so that we continue to have food, shelter and recreation services from our environment.

      It's time for our leaders to actually take the lead and do what's needed to create a planet that can sustain human life.
